Alyssa Klauder

President
"I joined the first executive board of the American Statistical Association- Temple University Chapter during my sophomore year as the Director of Communications. Now in my junior year, I am serving as President. I love AmStat because of the diverse group of students and the networking opportunities I have been introduced to through this SPO. Statistics and Data Analysis is an ever-growing field and I believe it can be applied in any professional situation. I hope my passion can be seen and felt by AmStat’s members and community!"

Vanessa Colon

Vice President
"I am a sophomore Fox Honors student majoring in Statistical Science & Data Analytics. One of the reasons I chose Temple University was because of this major. My passion for statistics & analyzing big data drew me to the outstanding curriculum Temple has to offer. I am also a Team Leader in the United States Army ROTC program on campus. In this program, I am training to eventually commission as a 2nd LT in the US Army after graduation. Both of these programs allow me to enhance my skills in leadership & problem solving."

Christian Seigfried

Treasurer
"I am a sophomore that has recently switched from Actuarial Science to Statistical Science/Data Analytics. I have had a passion for mathematics ever since I learned that I could multiply 4 and 3 faster than my second grade partner could type the equation into her calculator. I decided to become a part of TU AmStat so that I could spread this love for statistics to a wider array of individuals and broaden my knowledge of not only the subject, but the career as well. In my spare time, I like to read scientific journal articles about oncology and spending time with my friends and girlfriend."

Thomas Swanson

Director of Communications
"I am currently a Sophomore majoring in Statistical Science & Data Analytics. I have always been someone who has had a passion for math and statistics. It seemed like this was a perfect opportunity to choose this major as I will be one of the pioneering graduates of this program. I joined AmStat to gain leadership experience, make friends, & learn what it is really like to turn the skill set of analyzing and interpreting data into a career. In my spare time, I enjoy dirt biking, spending time with my friends, and most of all, attending car shows and learning about the modifications car enthusiasts utilize on their builds."

Amit Mistry

Director of Information Technology
"I'm a junior Management Information Systems major with a minor in Information Science & Technology. I'm a part of AmStat to gain new experiences and promote statistics."

Isaac Silver

Fundraising Chair
"I am a sophomore Statistical Science & Data Analytics major and Economics minor, studying in the Fox School of Business Honors Program. Coming from the city of Chicago, a big reason why I chose Temple was because of our exciting and unique statistics program. I was always a strong math student throughout high school, and statistics has interested me more than any other branch of mathematics. I wanted to join the executive board of TU AMSTAT because I have wanted to do my part in expanding and growing this SPO as the major grows along with it. Outside of AMSTAT, I am also a peer editor in the Fox Business Communications Center, and enjoy exploring Philadelphia and learning about cultures from all around the world."

Matt Shade

Community Service Chair
"I am a sophomore Statistical Science & Data Analytics major. I chose to switch to this major because I love math and statistics. After hearing some speakers at AmStat meetings, I realized how important statistics and data are becoming in companies, and I wanted to be a part of it. The field is growing very fast, and this major is preparing students to be successful in it. I joined AmStat to learn more about the opportunities available to me in the data analytics field, and also to meet and network with some amazing people. In my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching sports, hanging out with my friends, and exploring the city."

Donatas Zukas

Events Chair
"Statistical Science major opened the door to the opportunities in mathematical and business applications never before possible at Temple. The very experimental, fun and also challenging aspects of my personality fit well with my major, and thus it motivates me to go further and explore something new every day. Even though I am originally from Lithuania, I lived in Philadelphia since 2002 and I am happy to take Statistics courses not too far away from my home and family. While not studying I enjoy reading, creating and testing board games and spending time with my wife and family."
